Description

Brilliant, honest, combative - Eddie Jones is a gigantic figure in world rugby and a true legend of the game. My Life in Rugby is his explosive autobiography. 

Eddie Jones has masterminded a revival in English rugby after the shocking early exit at the home World Cup in 2015. Since taking over he has won the Six Nations Championship back to back, including England’s first grand slam in a generation, their first ever whitewash of Australia, as well as taking them on their longest ever winning streak.

Always a forthright and honest voice, Eddie tells the story of England’s remarkable turnaround and also the challenges of managing the biggest rugby nation in the world. My Life and Rugby draws on his coaching experience of Australia, when he lost in the final to Clive Woodward’s 2003 World Cup-winning team, and coaching Japan to the greatest upset in Rugby World Cup history when they beat South Africa. 

Eddie also shares leadership lessons that are equally applicable off the pitch, as well as how he has managed success and learnt from failure to now be rated one of the top sports coaches in the world.

The story of a rugby legend, told with unflinching honesty, My Life in Rugby is the ultimate rugby book for all fans of the sport.

Too well polished and inauthentic

This book reads like something published by a management consultant to promote their work. I think the most revealing part of the story is when Eddie says that he packaged and sold his coaching IP when working for the Brumbies. I don't think he's looked back since then! Avid rugby fans will want to read it just because he's lived through interesting times and this does shed some light, but I'll give you an example of the way he tells his stories. Scotland v England 2019 ---> Scotts come back from 31 - 0 down. Eddie talks about how fantastic George Ford was off the bench and what a fantastic decision he made to bring him on to save the gave, we then roll off into a story about Fergie Time and being patient about scoring in the last 5 mins. But the real story there was Owen Farrell's leadership as Captain, as it had been throughout the South Africa tour that summer. Eddie doesn't touch it. There are loads of these type of key gaps. If you know your rugby and read this, you'll be left scratching your head about why he doesn't mention anything that calls into question his judgement - then you'll remember this review!

Terrific

Great insight into one of the most interesting, diverse and successful rugby coaches to ever coach the game. Most enjoyable
